6:38 am on 3 September 2011

Brazilian Bruno Senna will drive for Renault for the rest of the Formula One season after the team reached a settlement with dropped German Nick Heidfeld.

The news came after a statement announcing a settlement with Heidfeld, who had taken legal action to try and regain his place.

Senna, nephew of the late triple champion Ayrton, replaced Heidfeld at last weekend's Belgian Grand Prix.
